Elon Musk has predicted a “campaign of dirty tricks” from Democrats and their allies after revealing he plans to shift his vote in the US election to the Republican Party.
The Tesla and SpaceX boss said on Monday he had voted “overwhelmingly” for the Democrats in the past, but would break the habit for “this election”, although it was unclear whether what election he was talking about.
On Tuesday, he tweeted: “In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party. But they have become the party of division and hatred, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican.
“Now watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold…” He concluded with a popcorn emoji.
